The Shakespeare interest group has been meeting for a very long time, certainly more than twenty years.
One Wednesday evening a month we meet in someone's house and, without any advance preparation, we divide up the parts and start reading. There are Shakespeare plays we've read many times, some we've only read once, and other authors we've occasionally explored.
Recent choices have included O'Neill, Shaw, and Wilde. The evening ends with dessert and a chance to discuss the parts we've played that evening.
